But I loved the functional paradigm and the elegant style embedded in the language. Just like you, I always thought the difficult part was to find a real project to work in, or at least, one related to my main area of work.
The famous example that always comes to mind is Pandoc.
@keyeoh I've done tons of little things here and there in haskell.. the problem with large projects is that there just arent enough good libraries outt there for it and finding developers for it isnt easy.... also doesnt help that it compiles to a native binary rather than run as a script (tthough we have java based haskell now)
I have to say I disagree on the lack of both decent libraries and finding developers. I’ve been using Haskell professionally for nearly a decade now and rarely find either hard to come by.
Edit: a year -> a decade… quite a difference!
